Club Report - “Exploring my Photographic World” A Talk By Baden Bowen CPAGB, BPE3*, AFAIP

Philip Hinton writes:

As the season is drawing to a close we had our penultimate speaker Baden Bowen CPAGB, BPE3*, AFAIP. from Dover.  His presentation began with a wide selection of his award winning photographs which he explained how he achieved many of the more complex manipulated images and how some he would now improve on or would do differently.  In the second half he explained how he had gone back to basics with a variety of film cameras from Polariod to Hasselblads, and repairing and redesigning old cameras which he still produced high quality images.  With a number of behind the scene photographs, Baden showed how with a simple studio set up in his kitchen he could still produce outstanding photographs.
